TYPISCHE FEHLVERHALTENSWEISEN VON FAHRANFANGERN UND MOGLICKEITEN GEZIELTER NACHSCHULUNG (TYPICAL ERRONEOUS PATTERN OF BEHAVIOR OF LEARNER DRIVERS AND POSSIBILITIES OF SELECTIVE SUBSEQUENT BEHAVIOR)
A special analysis of official accident statistics and questionnaires served as a basis of the study. It was clear that drivers with up to 2 years driving experience were involved in accidents 2 to 3 times more often than drivers who held a driving license more than 6 years. The most important result was that drivers in the age group 25-55 who held a driving license less than 2 years, were not involved in substantially more accidents than drivers in the same age group who had more driving experience. The higher accident rate among younger drivers showed a specific tendency as well. The main reasons as determined by the police are: driving off the road and collisions with oncoming traffic in conjunction with excessive speed. Youthfulness and inexperience at the wheel were concluded to be significant factors in the connected attitudes and patterns of behavior.
